Are dental implants right for me?
Missing teeth can distract from an otherwise beautiful smile.

If you have missing teeth or badly damaged teeth that make it difficult to speak clearly, chew food properly, or it’s just plain embarrassing to smile, dental implants may be a permanent solution for you. While most patients are candidates for the dental implant procedure a complete exam and consultation are necessary to determine if they are right for you.

What are dental implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. The implant functions as an attachment site and holds a replacement tooth where your own natural tooth once was. Dental Implants are made of bio compatible material titanium, which fuse naturally to your jawbone. Dental implants permanently replace the root of dead, damaged or diseased teeth. Dental implants simply function as “anchors” that are secured to the jaw bone for permanent support of replacement teeth. As you can see in the diagram the implant resembles a screw, which is actually implanted or attached to the underlying jawbone.
Much like the root of a regular tooth the implant acts as a sturdy anchor point for a replacement tooth or teeth. A restoration such as a crown or in the case of all on 4 dental implants an entire denture can be attached. Implants can look and function very much like your real teeth and provide many with the freedom to once again enjoy the foods they love like steak or corn on the cob.
What’s involved in the dental implant procedure?
The first step involves a titanium implant being attached into the jaw bone, much like in the diagram above. Bone grafting can also be used to help regenerate the bone growth around the implant. This helps provide a strong attachment area for the implant.
Once dental implants and restorations have been successfully placed it’s important for the patient to practice proper dental hygiene as instructed by your dental care professionals. Taking good care of your teeth and gums will help ensure your implants last.
Following placement the new titanium root will need sufficient time to heal. Typically the healing period can range from 6 weeks to 6 months. Patience is key as adequate healing time simply cannot be rushed. It is essential to ensure a stable secure foundation has been established for the dental restoration to be secured on. Once the dentist is fully satisfied that the bone has healed treatment can move forward.
Once sufficiently healed and secured to the surrounding bone a support post and replacement tooth or teeth can be attached to the implant or implants. Depending on the particular case crowns, bridges and even dentures can be attached to the implants. All on 4 dental implants are very popular with denture patients. Without a doubt dental implants are an excellent and in many cases the best solution for patients needing to replace a single missing tooth or teeth. Whether you need to replace on tooth or all your teeth dental implants may be the perfect solution for you.
